Over the last few months, I have traveled long hours to make TV appearances all over the nation. In just a few weeks, I visited cities like Albuquerque, Baton Rouge, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, and Tucson, all to appear on their local stations and talk about my work with nerve damage. Neuropathy is a prevalent problem across the country. In our office, we’re able to do amazing things and change our patients’ lives, but we have such a small reach. The Mayo Clinic estimates there are more than 3 million cases per year in the United States. Most people who suffer have never heard of our office and are unaware of available treatment options. During my various TV appearances, I address the mistakes people must avoid if they have nerve damage. One of the most common mistakes is doing nothing to treat the nerve damage beyond taking medication prescribed by a doctor. Relying on neuro inhibitors like Lyrica or Cymbalta, which only suppress the symptoms of pain, doesn’t really help the patient improve. In fact, a person could inadvertently be making their nerve damage worse because they aren’t listening to their body when it’s trying to tell them they have a problem. Factor in the side effects from the medication, and they are now suffering from a double whammy of trouble. All around the country, I hear stories from people whose lives are not going anywhere because of their nerve pain. They can’t sleep well or play with their grandchildren or enjoy an after-dinner walk with their spouse or participate in many activities they used to love. I want people to know they have options. They don’t have to accept being told “There’s nothing we can do” from their doctor. There is something we can do! I travel across the country and make these appearances so I can reach the people who have given up hope. A lot of work goes into each of these appearances, and most of the time it’s lonely. You’re on a plane by yourself, you’re at the hotel by yourself, and you eat dinner by yourself. What’s more, traveling back and forth can really drain your energy. I load myself up with vitamins and make sure I’m in bed by 9 p.m. so I can be energized for my next appearance. The cycle is tough, but it’s worthwhile
